STRENGTHS - Athletic and deceptively powerful, Pryor can be effective as a blocker, receiver and ball carrier. Both as a lead blocker and when out on edge, Pryor can bend knees and drive up into defender to deliver a hard blow to defender. With good balance and coordination, he is able to stay over feet to maintain block and eliminates man from the play. In addition to his physical skills as a blocker, he is instinctive and patient finding correct defender and time to make block. Although no one is ever going to confuse Pryor's quickness and running ability with that of Chris Johnson, Pryor has the tools to be a productive player with the ball in his hands. Smooth and fluid, Pryor follows blockers well, cuts off their blocks quickly and has a little wiggle to make tacklers miss. Not only able to avoid tacklers, he can run through attempted tackles and hits to consistently gain yards after contact. Although he did not catch a ton of passes in Florida State's offense, he showed good hands on limited opportunities and is a strong and productive runner after the catch.
WEAKNESSES - Not the prototypical 245 pound "hammer" fullback, Pryor does not have the size to consistently get movement on lead blocks vs strong linebackers. At times he ends up trying to make shoulder block from side out in space and is not consistently effective. Despite being a good runner with the ball in his hands for a fullback, he lacks the explosiveness and speed to be a big play threat carrying the ball. He will need to improve as a route runner to be effective on more than just dump off passes. His limited experience staying in and pass blocking means he will need work on his technique and awareness as a pass blocker to stay on the field in passing situations.
SUMMARY - Pryor is an under-rated fullback who I believe has the talent to become a solid, all-around starter. A naturally instinctive runner with good vision, he was consistently productive as a ball carrier showing the ability to run through tackles to gain yards after contact. While not always technically sound, Pryor usually did a good job of bending knees and driving up into defender to deliver a blow and has the balance to stay over feet and maintain block. Overall, Pryor is a good, versatile fullback with the talent to start in the NFL and can contribute as a blocker, receiver and ball carrier.
